    I have a Windows XP Home Edition machine that can't brouse at workgroup. I have tried all sorts of things, and suspect that spyware might be the problem. I wouldn't have thought that except that a Microsoft troubleshooting guide mentioned that as a possiblility. By the way, I have tried everything in the guide and somethings not in the guide so here goes.

    I have a Hijackthis log to show you folks, and I know it has spyware in it. Two things are highly suspect to me. One is farmmext.exe. Another that I am not as sure about is sockcfg.dll.

    Appreciate any help I can get.

    Thanks

    What symptoms do you have? Have you gone through a basic network connectivity exercise?

    All machines are must be in the same subnet, i.e. 192.168.0.x where x is any number. The subnet mask should be 255.255.255.0 for most small networks.

    Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

    PING each computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. You can obtain the IP address of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG. This should work for any Windows version.

    All computers should be in the same workgroup for computer browsing to function properly. File & Print Sharing has to be enabled on any computer you wish to share files or printers from. You also need to actually share the resource in question from My Computer, right click on the drive/printer/folder, and select sharing.

    If you encounter difficulties accessing computers that are visible in Network Neighborhood, make sure the computer being accessed has an account with the same name/password as the system connecting to it uses to login.

    While the default NetBIOS setting is correct for normal network configurations, it's possible for it to be altered, and it costs nothing to make sure it's correct. NETBIOS over TCP/IP must be enabled for normal network browsing.
